The world market for natural stone maintained its growth in 2018, leveraged mainly in the great demand of this material for finishes in the civil construction.
In the specific case of granite, the market led by countries such as India, China and Brazil was high in business, due to the great residential and commercial use of the product. In the last five years, granite turnover has maintained an annual growth of 3.3%, with the expectation of reaching US $ 17.68 billion in 2021.
This positive index is due to construction and renovation activities in developed countries, rapid industrialization and urbanization in developing countries and increasing the commercial value of granite products on the world market. Among the biggest consumers are Asian countries such as China, India, Thailand and Indonesia, where civil construction registered a great growth, mainly in the residential and urban infrastructure sectors
